Britney Spears versus Susan Butcher

Share this merde!

On election day, I got a CNN news flash email. With it being election day and all (and late afternoon) I figured that it was probably some early return election upset or something.. something really potentially important enough to warrant a news flash… So I opened the email and it was the news that Britney Spears had filed for divorce.

Fast forward to last Saturday, and I’m driving along on the highway, behind the wheel, and my husband casually mentions something about Susan Butcher having died a few months ago.

I literally felt the blood drain from my face and upper body, then I went cold all over. I seriously considered pulling over because I wasn’t sure I could drive.

I knew Susan Butcher. I went to school with Susan Butcher. I hadn’t heard, and I was stunned.

And then I was outraged. Because I hadn’t heard.

Because here an American woman who had won the Iditarod 4 times – truly an American Icon – got so little press when she passed that I hadn’t even heard about it, but Britney Spears’ filing for divorce deserves a CNN newsflash???

WTF is wrong with this country?

  1. I am totally in agreement that this is outrageous. But it isn’t an isolated incident! Just one example.

    Remember the mother of (I think) two children that was jogging in the mountains a few years back and was killed by a cougar. When they killed the cougar and found the kittens, money poured in to provide for the kittens. No help for the children that were left motherless until some people started to become outraged and then the focus shifted to the children.

    I believe that our society has seriously misplaced our priorities, and skewed our moral values. Of course, this is just my opinion.
